THE FISHING
Careysville Fishery offers some of the best salmon fly fishing in Ireland and includes 26 named pools. It is considered by many to be one of premier beats for salmon fishing in Ireland. Wading is excellent and among the numerous streams, pools and glides there is a great variety of fly fishing to suit both complete novice and challenge the most competent of fly casters. Access to either bank is via boat and for those pools further down the beat, Careysville Fishery has their own 4x4 vehicle.

Careysville has been in the ownership of the Duke of Devonshire’s family since the 1930s. The fishery is discretely situated within a 160 acre private estate, half a mile from the nearest road. With its beautiful scenery, warm hospitality and enviable catch records, anglers from near and far return again and again. There are two very experienced full time Ghillies on the fishery. They are on hand to offer help and advice as well as tuition, if required.

There are 2 fishing huts at the Careysville Fishery. Their main fishing hut (once a cricket pavilion) is a much-loved feature of the Careysville experience and lunch is served here each day. It is situated next the river with vehicle parking right outside. Amongst its facilities are a wood burning stove, dining area, kitchen, electricity and WC. On the opposite bank there is a smaller fishing hut on stilts, which provides great shelter from the elements and commands a lovely view out over one of the best pools.
